Take the already state-of-the-art Smith Vantage helmet, add a Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS), and you have the new standard for on-hill safety. MIPS has been proven to greatly reduce rotational forces when encountering oblique impact—the most common head impact in skiing and snowboarding accidents. Furthermore, the women’s Vantage features the same Hybrid SL shell and Aerocore construction for improved protection and comfort. Its Nanosilver performance lining wicks moisture, while a dual regulator controls 21 vents for unrivaled temperature control. With an user-friendly, adjustable BOA FS360 fit system, the Smith Vantage with MIPS offers a truly elite combination of safety, comfort, and performance.

- AirEvac 2 ventilation channels cool air and reduces goggle fogging
- Removable Snapfit SL2 ear pads are compatible with Skullcandy audio systems
- BOA FS360 fit system for precise fit and on-the-fly adjustments
- Winter 2022/23 product
Smith’s hybrid shell construction combines its durable Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) “bombshell” plastic with its lightweight in-mold material to produce a low-profile, tough, well-fitting helmet with a clean, smooth surface and reduced weight.
Aerocore construction increases airflow to improve temperature regulation, increase impact-resistance, and prevent foggy goggles.
Koroyd utilizes an innovative open-cell construction of thermally-welded, co-polymer cylinders to protect your brain during a crash. Upon impact, the series of tubes crush uniformly to better convert, absorb, and decelerate kinetic energy, and as a result, reduce trauma.
AirEvac 2 ventilation system generates airflow to pull fog-causing, warm, moist air from the goggle chamber, via the vents on the top of the goggles. The system continues to push warm air out, through external vents and internal channels within the liner. AirEvac 2 is paired with a Regulator climate control system for easy adjustments to the internal airflow.
BOA® FS360 Fit System
BOA® FS360 Fit System features an intuitive dial system that tightens or expands a full 360° halo design of adjustment options within the helmet, letting you achieve a customized, precise fit.
Multi-directional Impact Protection System
MIPS Brain Protection System is a helmet-integrated, low-friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head.
